Welcome to my Kickstarter project to get the third year of Crimes Against Hugh's Manatees comics made into a book!
Crimes Against Hugh's Manatees VOL. 3 Book Trailer!
What is Crimes Against Hugh's Manatees?
Crimes Against Hugh's Manatees is a daily comic strip that started in March 2010. It showcases a revolving cast of unnamed animals. The characters discuss a wide range of topics. Anything from existential dread to pie. *
Here are a few recent examples:
The first year of comics was collected in ebook form and the second year (thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign) was collected in a physical book.
What is in the book?
Every comic published between March 21, 2012 and March 20, 2013. That's a total of 365 comics!
The book is 192 pages of full color comics printed on 80 lb. gloss paper. It's 8.5 X 8.5 with a matte laminate soft cover.
What is the money going toward?
I need at least $5000 dollars to cover the cost of design, printing and the shipping of the book.
I have enlisted the help of graphic designer Brett Lyerla to put the book together. Part of the funds raised will go towards getting him compensated for the work he has completed on the book.
Right now the book is finished with the design stages and I have a printer ready to go to press as soon as the funds are raised.

Risks and challenges
All of the design work and communication with the printer has been completed for this book. Once the funds are received the book will be ready to go to press. Since most of the leg work has already been completed for this project, I'm confident this book will get to backers with little trouble.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
